Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce Recipe with Sesame Oil
- 2/3 cup of peanut butter, chunky or creamy on preference
- 1/4 cup of soy sauce
- 1/2 cup of coconut milk
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 green onions, diced
- 2 tbsp of sesame oil
- 1/2 tsp powdered ginger
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 fresh squeezed lime or 2T of lime juice
- Crushed peanuts or sesame seeds (optional)
Whisk together all ingredients in a small saucepan and then simmer over low heat. Sauce will thicken, so it may be good to keep some extra coconut milk or water on hand if you like your sauce a little thinner. The sauce goes great with Chinese egg noodles, but the recipe can be made fully vegan very easily. Sprinkle crushed peanuts or sesame seeds on top before eating.
